Ok, smart guys... If FCAS is so much better than FSA then why are there so many more FSAs? If FCAS was really better, more people would get that designation.

More people own Ford Tauruses than Lamborghinis but does that mean the Taurus is better?

How many of the people arguing for CAS supremacy are even members of the CAS (i.e. credentialed)?

I think SOA members are more secure given they don't start threads like this once a week.
